The top United Nations official in Iraq has strongly condemned the multiple suicide attacks that took place on 4 April in Tikrit, which resulted in many casualties.

“Targeting civilians and inflicting maximum casualties among civilians is the hallmark of the terrorists' despicable tactics," said Mr. Kubiš , who is the Special Representative of the Secretary-general and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI).

According to media reports, at least 31 people were killed and dozens were wounded in overnight attacks carried out by Da'esh.

Mr. Kubiš said that these latest suicide bombings in the Sunni heartland of Tikrit show that despite the terrorist Da'esh (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL) being “relentlessly routed” on the battle fronts in the face of the steady advances by the Iraqi Security forces, and despite the wish of civilians that returned to the liberated cities to restart their peaceful life, the terrorists are sparing no effort to indiscriminately target everyone and anyone who is not willing to die for their barbaric inhuman Takfiri ideology.
